LOS ANGELES — The San Diego County Water Authority on Thursday released a $3 billion water purchase agreement with Stamford-based Poseidon Resources, the private developer of a Carlsbad seawater desalination plant.

If the water authority’s board approves the agreement after two public hearings planned for Oct. 2 and Oct. 10, it will culminate a decade-long process by Poseidon to get the $900 million desalination plant and pipeline built that included the resolution of multiple lawsuits brought by environmental advocates.
